She eventually started an affair with Ryan Connor, which led to her and Chesney splitting up.

In 2015, Katy decided to move to Portugal with her and Chesney's son Joseph. But in 2017, she died off screen leaving her sister Izzy and Chesney devastated.

Chesney flew out to Portugal to support Joseph at the funeral and bring him back to Weatherfield.

Georgia's thoughts on coronavirus

Georgia has recently urged her fans to "listen to instructions" amid the coronavirus pandemic.

She tweeted: "Finding all this very scary. As I am sure many of you are. Knowing grandmothers and mothers haven't been able to see their children today is sad.

"The whole thing is sad. Please, for your own safety and your families safety, listen to instructions given. This is very real.

"The quicker we listen and act accordingly the quicker this can be over and feel like a mad dream. The less people we lose. The less awful stories we read.

"I know I won't make a difference saying it. But please. I don't want to be in the position where any of my family are ill."

The actress recently opened up about a rude encounter she had in a shop during the coronavirus pandemic, when she went to get food for her neighbour.
